Denver, CO – Two-Vehicle Crash on Ash St. & M.L.K. Jr Blvd Ends in Injuries

Denver, CO (July 23, 2021) – Emergency crews in the Denver area were requested at the scene of an accident that ended in injuries. At around 7:10 p.m., on July 20, the Denver Police Department was notified that an accident on M.L.K. Jr Boulevard required assistance.

Reports from the DPD show that two vehicles were involved in a collision on M.L.K. Jr Boulevard at the intersection of Ash Street during the evening hours. The incident prompted the police to close the roadway as they worked to remove vehicles and debris. At least one person was transported to a local hospital for the medical treatment of injuries. At this time, investigations surrounding the accident are underway.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Motor Vehicle Accidents in Denver, Colorado

Every year, people are hurt in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Colorado due to the negligence of other drivers. Although we can take proactive measures to protect others, there is no true way to prevent other people from engaging in reckless and negligent acts while operating their vehicles. Some of the leading causes of crashes in Colorado include:

  • Texting, talking or engaging in other distracting behaviors
  • Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Driving unsafe for inclement weather conditions
  • Drivers who speed
  • Drivers who run red lights or stop signs
  • Drivers who disregard traffic control devices
  • Drivers who are unfamiliar with roadways
  • Malfunctioning and defective parts
